Yesteday I bought 10 Maxell CDR80-XLS thinking they were made by TY, and then discovered they were Ritek ! :Z
From absolute quality to absolute crap
It's getting very difficult to find TY discs now. And I'm wondering why.
TDK : is selling various models of media : one made by them, and the other ("Metallic disc") made by Ritek. But no more TY.
The packaging of the Ritek "metallic Disc" is very similar to the old "Reflex Ultra Metallic " (which were made by TY) to fool the consumer...
Philips: few years ago, they sold Ritek (low end) and TY / Mitsui (high end) discs but they went 100% ritek few month ago.
Sony: was selling TY or Mitsui cd-r, but now is selling "Sony" CMC discs
So why are CD-R brands dumping TY for Ritek or other crap makers ?
